A Very Happy Ending in Idaho

They found her, alive!

Today, a handful of my fellow Idahoan's made me proud.  From the minute I turned on the tv this morning, the wonderful news about Shasta Groene has flooded the networks, both locally and nationally.

Thank heavens the people who happened to be in that particular restaurant at that particular moment in time had the wherewithall to act on their suspicions and make the 911 call that changed this little girl's life.  This story could easily have taken a much horrible turn for the worse, and perhaps on many levels it isn't a totally happy ending.  After all, Shasta has already suffered a huge loss.  I pray she pulls through this horrific ordeal; I hope the love from her family and the community will provide her with a quick and healthy recovery to take away whatever memories she will have from these past six weeks.  May this little girl have the strength to face the days, and nights, that lie ahead for her...and to stand tall as a witness against her abductor.

And, Amber Deahn, you are a true and genuine hero!  You are one awesome person...quick thinker that you are, remembering Shasta's face and realizing who it was you were looking at.

Sometimes, minding your own business is a good thing.  Then there are those times where people should, and must, cross that line in order to save an innocent life.

I don't think I ever felt that kind of joy over someone I didn't know before. Sometimes life throws us a little good news, right?

Something to be happy about!

Wow what a powerful entry.  I live in Florida and heard nothing of this incident.  It's nice to know there are people out there willing to speak up.  Nicki
